After more than 10 years as a stylist, Jamal Edmonds understands the importance of listening. As a young salon apprentice, he listened to his instructors and was rewarded for his efforts with a scholarship to the prestigious Bennett Career Institute. Even after countless fashion shows and magazine spreads, he hasn’t forgotten this crucial skill. It’s why Salon Lamaj, his beauty shop in Capitol Heights, continues to thrive.
Jamal is no stranger to the salon floor, and he regularly works alongside his team of highly trained stylists, all of whom have had a say in developing a menu of customizable beauty services. Their skill is evident in the way they sew and braid extensions or finish looks with a round-brush blowout—but never without listening to their clients first. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp. Facials gently wipe away acne, Shavasana extensions add volume to lashes, and makeup applications ensure that you’ll get the fingerprints of any relative who unlawfully tries to pinch your cheeks.

The specialists at Balanced Body Massage Group cleanse large intestines of accumulated waste and toxins during colon-hydrotherapy treatments. A three-stage filtration system and disposable hoses gently circulate water, which dislodges and washes away pollutants in conjunction with a light massage and the congressional subcommittee on waste. Throughout the 45-minute session, the hydrotherapist will fine-tune water pressure and temperature to keep clients comfortable over the course of several fills and releases. After the cleanse, bodies often have an easier time processing foods and experience less fatigue and bloating. Clients can pair treatments with the aqua chi, an ionic foot spa soak that draws out toxins through the soles and restores equilibrium better than a nap on a balance beam.
